MACAU Casino City  by Suzy Chan
  As the main economic income of Macau, the gambling industry has already surpassed the Las Vegas in the United States by seven times. It is called the Oriental Monte Carlo. The development of the gambling industry alone in Macau China, brings huge profits and disadvantages.
My design is to inspire local residents to communicate with the government through a series of prints. They are made to push the government balance between development and sustainability.  I designed advertisements of Macau casinos based on traditional Chinese rituals, to make people "memorise" the "dead city" by the way of sacrifice (scattering fake money, and burning, etc.), through which the information of protest will be carried to every corner of the city.As part of the action, I designed the ironic costumes of “welcome to make a killing in Macau”.

澳門 賭博城市 by Suzy Chan
        賭業作為澳門經濟的支柱,其收入已經超過美國拉斯維加斯的7倍,被稱為東方蒙地卡羅。賭業的單一發展帶來巨大利潤的同時,也給城市帶來很多壞處。年輕人的就業方向單一(大多只能去賭場工作),城市景觀被浮誇的賭場風格嚴重破壞(在城市中心建假巴黎鐵塔、威尼斯運河),遊客過度導致本地居民生活受到干擾等等。在一部分人眼中,澳門已經成為毫無生機、只迎合遊客的”死亡城市”。

我的設計是通過一系列印刷品激勵當地居民與政府溝通,旨在推動政府在經濟發展與可持續生態之間取得平衡。 我根據中國傳統祭祀用品設計了澳門賭場的“廣告”,讓人們通過傳統祭祀方式(撒錢,燒錢等)的方式“悼念”這座“死去的城市”,抗議信息將通過這些方式傳遞導城市的每個角落。作為行動的一部分,我設計了“澳門歡迎你來大發橫財”這類有諷刺意味的服飾
